Former Princeton Police officer sentenced


PRINCETON (WVVA) - A former Princeton Police officer who pleaded guilty to blackmailing a boy for sexual favors was sentenced Monday.

Christopher Winkler was sentenced to five years probation and home confinement in court Monday. Winkler had agreed to plead guilty in exchange for alternative sentencing instead of jail time.

According to the criminal complaint, Winkler met the juvenile in the parking lot of a supermarket while on duty and asked the boy for sexual favors in exchange for the reduction of an amount of money the boy owed Winkler.

Winkler's probation will be reviewed every six months. He can never serve as a police officer again.
